On a show like The Bachelor, there is only so much you get to see to each side of the contestants, no matter how much the camera follows them around. And while Raven has proven herself to be a strong-willed woman who is totally open with Nick, Raven's Instagram proves that the Bachelor contestant is also an awesome BFF to her friends. Luckily for fans, she actually utilizes social media, so there's not only recent posts to get to know her better, but ones that go far back, showcasing her love for each of her best friends, some of whom have been called her #soulmate in the captions.
So not only has Raven proven herself to be able to fit in with Nick's family, but she obviously sees personal relationships as super important in her life. And in a world of Bachelor contestants who love to bring the drama and whose Instagrams showcase mostly just their modeling careers, it's a refreshing change of pace. Most recently on The Bachelor, Raven told Nick her most recent breakup story about finding out that her then-boyfriend was cheating on her with another woman. And while the whole stiletto part of the conversation was a bit unnerving to say the least, it seems like that was a momentary lapse of judgment for the seemingly level-headed Bachelor contestant.
Raven's Instagram is full of photos of her with her besties and it actually makes her seem that much more human to fans, which is a good thing, because it also makes it that much easier to root for her. For example...
She Knows The Value Of Having Squad Goals
Any 20-something woman knows how important and sometimes hard it is to stay in touch with all of your girlfriends while you're each growing up and living your own lives. And I'm just a little bit jealous of the crew that Raven apparently still has going on.
She Celebrates Galentine's Day
For those of you who don't know, Galentine's Day is the fictional holiday from Parks and Recreation, made up to celebrate your relationships with your girlfriends as opposed to the usual Valentine's Day of love and mushiness. The fact that Raven is all about this gives her tons of extra cool points.
She Climbs Mountains With Her Besties
Raven captioned this photo with "I wouldn't want to tackle any mountain without these ladies by my side!" and it's just one more piece of evidence that despite the troubles with her ex, she has managed to cling to these very real friendships over the years.
She's Also There For Their Weddings
Having tons of BFFs that you're still close to also means having tons of weddings happen throughout the years, but the 25-year-old fashion boutique owner obviously has no trouble being there for her girls.
She Knows How To "Treat Yo Self" With Her Girls
Another Parks and Recreation reference, "treat yo self" refers to a day of the year when you get to pamper yourself without any guilt or buyer's remorse. Raven and her girlfriends aren't exactly going all out as her caption reads "Treat Yoself to a taco," but it's still kind of awesome.
Keeping up your end in important friendships gets harder as you get older, but despite being a busy business owner and appearing on The Bachelor, Raven's Instagram proves that she seems to have little trouble being a pretty cool BFF. As if viewers needed another reason to love her.
